So the buzz for this movie is that it was already done in 2013 and released in some countries around August 2013, but only now released in the US. The word is that the original director’s cut of around three-hour long was renegotiated” by the production house The Weinstein Company and re-cut into some two-hour length.
I’m also really interested in the slight changes in language in the future. It was funny to hear of objects like guns or cigarettes becoming extinct”. It’s definitely not a word you would usually hear in reference to objects, so it was a nice touch in terms of constructing a genuine dystopian future with the language changes that reflect the societal and cultural changes surrounding it. Lots of great world-building in this film.
There’s a darkly surrealist tone to Snowpiercer that’s reminiscent of Terry Gilliam, if Terry Gilliam weren’t quite so… Terry Gilliam-y. There’s weirdness in this movie, for all that it’s more accessible than a Brazil or a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. During one blood-pumping fight scene Curtis slips on a fish. Again: Chris Evans slips on a fish. Tilda Swinton takes her false teeth out at one point for some reason. There’s a scene where our grizzled revolutionaries encounter a chipper elementary school teacher (Alison Pill) who leads her charges in a rousing singalong about how great Wilford, the God-like owner of the train, is. It’s ridiculous, but it works.
But apart from just employing this sort of humor (which is quite uncharacteristic to a post-apocalyptic, big-budget film but works wonderfully), Joon-ho Bong also disorients the average lover of the genre by leaving a few things unsettled, be it the motivation of a character for killing both members of the tail-front and of the front-front, or a teenager’s ability to see through walls.
The movie is based on the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige” by Jacque Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette. I have not read it yet, but I can say that Bong Joon-ho and his co-screenplay writer Kelly Masterson (he previously made an impressive debut with Sidney Lumet’s last work ” Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead ” (2007)) have made a darkly engaging SF thriller from their source. While there is the constant urgency driving its plot and characters, the film sometimes slows its pace to let us identify with the characters and be absorbed in their dystopian world.
The ’70s seem to be in style these days. I don’t know if we have the hipsters to blame for that with their late ’70s mustaches and too-cool-to-care throw-back culture; but, honestly, you don’t have to ask Hollywood twice to make a nuanced, retro-chic hipster movie about conflicted, complicated self-tormented characters roving around in ’70s threads and orange-tinted sunglasses — which is American Hustle in a nutshell.
As Irving’s other better half, Ms. Adams, a virtuoso of perkiness, goes deeper here than she’s ever been allowed to. She showed an indelibly darker, more dangerous side in a supporting role in Mr. Anderson’s Master,” playing Lady Macbeth to a cult leader; she has a lot more to do in American Hustle.” Like Irving, Sydney is a self-invention, one containing multitudes, from the former stripper she starts off as, to the elegant British noblewoman she pretends to be for the couple’s loan scams. With her bright eyes and alabaster gleam, Ms. Adams can look like a porcelain doll, a deceptive mien that helps complicate Sydney and turns an unpredictable character into a thrillingly wild one, whose ordinary scream is the howl of a wolf.
The real strong point of this film — besides its intricately nuanced 1970s Jersey setting that was built with painstaking detail — is its acting. Christian Bale and Amy Adams are especially good in this film, and Jeremy Renner is so likeable that it breaks your heart, considering how his character has to get his hands dirty in the underworld of society. Jennifer Lawrence’s character is outrageously annoying, infuriating, comical, and pitiable all at the same time. Lawrence brought all of these layers to the screen with skill.
David Russell’s American Hustle,” an intentionally overripe comedy about corruption, duplicity, loyalty, and love, is a series of astonishments. Russell, rewriting a script developed by Eric Singer, takes off from the Abscam affair—the bizarre criminal investigation of the nineteen-seventies in which the F.B.I. called on a swindler named Mel Weinberg to help ensnare public officials. (Six congressmen and a senator were among those ultimately convicted.) The bureau’s elaborate sting involved two Arab sheikhs” (both F.B.I. employees) eager to invest in Atlantic City’s nascent casino industry and willing to bribe officials in order to procure operating licenses.
Agreed sir. The acting is outstanding but the plot is way too WTF. Russell likes to focus on characters and fill in a plot” later but I truly believe he needs to spend more time screenwriting, or have someone to check and balance off of. Way too incoherent, american hustle movie review I’d give it a C or a C+. Very good point Jackson, I liked it a little more than Silver linings which I truely felt was a terribly annoying film. Saw it last night. Agree with the ratings. The cameo was worth it too. Worth the ticket price.
Today at the San Diego Comic-Con, Harley-Davidson® and Marvel Studios will introduce Project LiveWire – Harley-Davidson’s first electric motorcycle – to fans gathered at the annual international convention. Project LiveWire, which is featured in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, will be the ride of choice for Natasha Romanoff (a.k.a. Black Widow) played by Scarlett Johansson, in an epic scene with Captain America in the film.
And that could make room for a Black Widow solo movie. It’s not a matter of picking that over a Cap3 or Secret Avengers. It’s a matter of what else to add when you got room for more down the line. Don’t worry. I don’t think it’ll happen before sometime after Avengers 3. We’ll probably also get Ms. Marvel and Black Panther first because there’s a demand. But down the line I could see it happening.
I believe you will be difficult pressed to locate a better bargain for movie rental fees on present day market. For $8 you are receiving 4 free physical rental fees… so that you can watch a brand new release each week free of charge, use of all of their streaming library and the other feature I’ve not pointed the avengers movie out the opportunity to rent or buy much of what’s offered at the kiosk to your pc or Roku for around exactly the same prices provided by their rivals Amazon. Com, and M-GO. You may also rent DVD’s and Blu-Ray’s using their kiosk for under $1.50 each day that is a great cost to have an evening’s entertainment.
I’m also surprised at the lack of merchandise so far. The Avengers will undoubtedly attract a lot of kids, what better way to solidify that then by getting toy lines and other merchandise out early. I remember when the Phantom Menace line was released before the movie; I was stoked to see all of these new characters and couldn’t wait to see the movie as a result. The same applies to video games. There has been no news of any Avengers game in development (after one got cancelled) yet video games are a great way to generate hype for a movie.
It’s great to see Marvel movies produced. Seen enough of Spider man & Fantastic 4. Bring on the Avengers. No Wolverine is great as he had no bearing on the avengers for ages. Hulk’s already been in movies. Chris Evans as Cap. Well why type cast him as Torch. Least Cap wears a mask. Book your tickets to The Avengers in New Zealand with EVENT Cinemas and you’ll receive an exclusive Fury Code worth 2000 points!

In this show, Phil Svitek and co-hosts Marisa Serafini and Demetri Panos discuss the 2013 David Twohy film Riddick in which left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick’s past.
They’re not the only ones interested in capturing Riddick, however, as Boss Johns (MATT NABLE) arrives with his crew that includes Dahl (KATEE SACKHOFF) and Moss (BOKEEM WOODBINE), although they want the long-escaped con for reasons beyond the price on his head. Yet, neither team is prepared for just how resourceful and wily Riddick is, or the danger both he and their new environs pose to them. Future is AOP & PPA Digital Publisher of the Year and BMA Media Company of the Year.
Casting Riddick adrift on a predator-infested planet sounds like a template for tension on paper, but the survivalist opening scenes drag like Riddick’s drawling diction in practice. Failing to restore mystique to Riddick or Patrick Tatopoulos’ alien designs, the cheesy CGI critters and weary post-Chronicles expository guff inspire little but the desire to see Twohy kick-start the story.
The third act is a bit weaker as the movie shifts away from its slow-build suspense to shoot-em-up monster action, but even still, Riddick is fun to watch. Thankfully, Riddick is entertaining enough to overcome its lackluster visual effects. Fast paced and exciting, Riddick is a ton of fun and a surprisingly strong start to the fall movie season. We present to you the top 10 sexiest bald Hollywood stars who dazzle us with their smooth and shiny heads.
The only real connections to Pitch Black besides the title character of Riddick (Vin Diesel), are the other two survivors, the priest Imam (Keith David) and a girl named Jack (now renamed Kyra and played by the beautiful but strangely undamaged Alexa Davalos). It’s they that bring Riddick out of hiding when Imam sends mercenaries to hunt him down. Imam, along with a brilliantly realized waify Elemental (Judi Dench), is looking for help against an invading horde called the Necromongers and it seems to them that the only way to fight unholy evil is with another kind of evil… Riddick.

Concerned that the Gladers have become too complacent with their imprisonment, Thomas begins challenging the laws of their society – putting him in direct conflict with Gally (Will Poulter), leader of the Builders, who believes that Thomas is responsible for new threats that have put the delicate society in peril. However, when the first female Glade tenant arrives with an ominous message, Thomas, Alby, and Newt realize they can no longer wait-out their lives within the confines of the maze. The time has come to escape.
The Maze Runner (2014) is mysteriously charming. I have not read the book so naturally I have zero idea what this movie is about. After what I’ve seen, it’s surprisingly good with interesting plot! Some parts of the film seems to be hilarious, as it is a little crazy, because there are certainly some subjects did not expect. However, I will not tell you not want to spoil it, but if you have questions about the movie, just ask away! As for the molds, they did a great job in the performance of his characters; I’m not sure if your personality matches the book, but honestly, they seem as if they had been trapped in the maze for years, really!
I have read and seen book reviews of The Maze runner where the reviewers say that the Hunger Games trilogy are better and very alike to The Maze runner. I personally liked The Maze runner more than the Hunger Games. Why? the maze runner movie The set is great, the characters are relatable and there are unexpected twists that will blow your mind and rip your heart out. Did you watch the Maze Runner yet? What did you think of it? Tell me below in the comments.
Not that the movie was bad, in fact I was entertained by it, it had fantastic special effects (not only the walls of the maze, but the Grievers as well) and the pace of the film kept me interested. The reason I don’t want to see a sequel of The Maze Runner is because this one wasn’t doesn’t deserve a sequel. This movie was presumptuous. It right away assumed and decided it deserved another. The sequel, The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials has a Sept. 18th, 2015 release.
